New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 17, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas 2 ii Herald-Zeitung fl Tuesday, October 17,1995 Stover to appeal firing by trustees By MELANIE GERIK Staff Writer An agricultural science teacher fired last month will appeal the Comal Independent School District trustees' decision, his attorney said Monday. Kelly Slover, an agricultural science teacher at Smithson Valley High School for three years, was fired on Sept. 7 after trustees voted 4-2 to terminate his contract. He was accused of injecting air underneath the skin of a student’s show calf, injecting in the calf s jaw a chemical that would stunt the growth of permanent teeth, and branding the calf with an unregistered brand. Slover maintained his innocence throughout the IO hours of testimony spread over two hearings Sept. 6 and 7 at Canyon Middle School. Slover has until Friday to officially file a petition for review with the Texas Education Agency, said Sabrina Arellano, Slover’s attorney. She said Slover is “looking at all the different options” as to whether to also file a civil lawsuit against the district, and to request that he be reinstated in bis former position at the TEA hearing. “He feels that his name has been blackened,” Arellano said. Slover helped Terry Urbanczyk, a Comal County commercial rancher, find a show calf for her daugh- ‘He feels that his name has been blackened.’ — Sabrina Arellano Slover’s attorney ter, SVHS student Jenny Urbanczyk. Slover was the go-between the Urbanczyks and Curt Jergens, a rancher from the Panhandle who was at the San Antonio Livestock Show in February. During the hearing, both Terry Urbanczyk and district administrators said Slover admitted to the unethical and unprofessional conduct, but Slover denied the allegations. Dennis Quick, president of the Association of Citizens for Education member and vocal supporter of Slover, said the Slovers have “packed up and left town” and did not leave a forwarding address or phone number. Arellano declined to comment on the whereabouts of her client. Therold Fanner, attorney for the district, had not received any information from the Texas Education Agency or the district about the appeal as of Monday, but said the district would “cross that bridge when we come to it” on preparing for the hearing. District Superintendent Jerry Major would not comment on the pending appeal. A TEA hearing officer will hear the case in Austin, then submit a written proposal to the agency commissioner. The commissioner then has the authority to either approve or reject the proposal. Farmer said the decision of the trustees is not considered during the TEA hearing, and said the new hearing “makes the local hearing look like a dry run.” “Everybody gets a second bite at the apple,” he said. The next level of appeal after the TEA would be heard before a district judge in Travis County. Thieves hit ll Canyon Lake businesses in one night By DAVID DE KUNDER Staff Writer Late Thursday night and early Friday morning thieves broke into 11 Canyon Lake businesses, stealing mostly change from cash registers, the Comal County Sheriff s Department said on Tuesday.

It is very difficult to track these suspects down. But we got some good evidence to work with. We just need to put the pieces Change in cash registers targeted by burglars; investigators have leads and possible suspects together.” lf and when the suspects are caught, they may be charged with a Class A misdemeanor instead of a second ‘Yesterday we talked to four possible suspects.’ — Lt. Sumner Bowen degree felony, Bowen said. Under a state law put into effect last year, if less than $1,500 worth of property is stolen, it is considered a misdemeanor instead of a felony.
